xx RIP Al Jarreau

Al Jarreau was an icon in the soft jazz genre. There have been a few of his songs over the years that I enjoy listening to. He passed away at 76.

RIP Al cry

One of my great musical heroes.

Since I have my monthly radio show on Thursday I will play one of Jarreau's songs, I will pick one from the "Jarreau" (1983) album. Still have to make up my mind which one, that whole album is so brilliant!...

Some great guest artists in the lineup for the '83 'Jarreau' album - David Foster, Jeff Porcaro, Steve Porcaro, Steve Gadd, Bill Champlin, and more.

Al's 'Breakin' Away' album became the definition for the soft jazz and R&B genres in 1981. The lineup on this album was amazing too, inclung Steve Lukather and George Duke.
